It can be said that the best athlete in the state of Ohio in recent years has appeared on Twitter with a message to his fans Thursday afternoon.
Olympic gold medalist Kyle Snyder revealed his intention to leave the Ohio State camp to become a rival. Snyder wrote a heartfelt letter announcing his move from Columbus to Penn State.
He is now part of the Nittany Lions wrestling club as he trains for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Snyder announced this decision in a statement to Team USA Wrestling:
"As wrestlers, this sport involves exhausting yourself of all the options to increase your odds of improvement. Ohio State is one of the best places where you can go as a rookie and as a RTC athlete to coach, but I think the change of scenery and the change of look on me with the different Training partners and coaches that I can have at the Nittany The Lion Wrestling Club will put me at ease, knowing at least that I've tried this option. "
At the world championships this year, Snyder won a bronze medal, his worst career result in a national tournament.
Snyder decided to get things moving a few months before the Olympics, because of the weakness (for him) of the finish.
Snyder won three national titles at Ohio State before joining the professional ranks.
